Love Brother Bill
To my wonderful brother who holds a place in my heart. I will cherish your letters and talking to you on the phone. You have always lifted me up whenever I talked to you on the phone and read your letters. You are a gem. Thank you for the wonderful memories. I will always remember that and think of the good times and will miss you calling me sugar. Love from your sister until we meet again.
My prayers and deepest sympathy goes out to the entire family, the lost of my brother Carl will leave an empty void in the lives of everyone that knew and loved him. God bless and keep his soul for someday we will all meet in a far better more understanding world.
Suzanne, Josh, & Marybeth.. Karen, Keith, & Kaitlyn… I am so sorry for your loss. Your Dad was always so sweet to me… he will be missed by all who knew & loved him.
Suzanne and Karen,
So sorry to read about Carl’s passing. Our Deepest sympathies go out to you and your families at the loss of your Father.
In the short time you visited our Men’s Breakfast group you added much to our Christian fellowship. You will be missed but there is comfort in knowing you are no longer in pain and with your Lord Jesus Christ. YBIC.
Carl was a good friend, a dedicated Christian and all-around great guy. He was always encouraging and uplifting folks around him and will be greatly missed. I worked with Carl at the church Food Pantry and he was one of the hardest worker there because of his concern for others. May God bless his family and hold them in His tender, strong arms in their time of loss. May his family know that he’s in a better place with Jesus and his wife, and that he’s already singing in the heavenly choir.
To Suzie,Josh,Marybeth & Family, I can barely imagine the loss you must feel, loosing a GREAT person like Carl! He was my friend! I loved singing to the Lord together. We shared His word of encouragement, to ALL who needed HIS word & LOVE. He loved people. He hated injustice to the poor & needy! I’m GLAD he’s in NO more pain, & in the presence of OUR LORD! Singing no doubt with Mary right beside him! I’ll miss him,LOTS!!
May God be with you and give you strength and comfort at this time. Love and sympathy, Mabel
Carl’s was a life well lived. His face glowed and his voice rang like those of one who has spent much time seeking God’s face and listening for His voice. I can’t think of Carl without recalling the Isaiah’s line that “in quietness and meekness shall be your strength.”
